Tiffany Clark was a memorable performer on the New York adult film scene in the early 1980s, a favorite stripper at the Melody Burlesk, and a ubiquitous presence on the party scene with her husband and fellow actor, Fred Lincoln.

For a time they seemed to be everywhere – from swingers clubs like Plato’s Retreat or fetish venues like Hellfire, to writing, directing and producing their own successful films.

And she was stunning too. A dark-haired beauty who was often featured in the magazines of the day.

The trouble was that for a long time we had no idea where she was or even who she really was.

Then, one day about 10 years ago, we were in Florida to interview an old loop maker from the early 1970s named Sal Sodano. He was an old man in ill-health so we weren’t prepared for the person who opened the front door. The person who greeted us was a beautiful middle-aged blonde woman – who looked suspiciously familiar.

It turned out that she was the person formerly known as Tiffany Clark – who Sal happened to be staying with at the time.

Over the next years we’d go and see Tiffany and her family often, and slowly got to know more about the real person behind Tiffany Clark. And as it turns out, her real life was more dramatic, more surprising than we could ever have imagined.

Tiffany was understandably hesitant to open up and share her story. Finally earlier this year we sat down, and over the course of four meetings, she talked about her life, and how she remembers the exciting, scary and wild times.

It’s a story of love, parties, arrests, drugs, abuse, family, jail, murder and survival.

It’s the story of Tiffany Clark. She’s a remarkable person, and we’re privileged that she shared her story with us.

For more pictures from Tiffany’s life, see here.

This episode’s running time is 121 minutes.

    As one of the original Tiffany Clark Animals, this was AWESOME.

    Tiffany is / was / always will be one of the most genuine and sweet of people I met when living in New York. She had time for everyone and I never heard a bad word said about her.

    Love you always Tiffany!

      An Original Animal, OMG I love that you have been a fan for so long. I recently saw a picture of my old T-Shirt
      “Only An Animal Can Understand” so true in so many ways…..
      Love you

      Tiffany

      My Dear Friend,

      There are so many memories that hrs of reporting couldn’t cover. But I thank you for always standing by me. A true friend in everyway that counts. Thank you

      Tiff

    Another outstanding peace of work…and I was a little nervous about this one because the Fred Lincoln podcast was one of maybe two podcasts thus far that I felt like I needed to take a shower after. The podcasts, as they so often do, humanize the subject and in turn, Tiffany revealed a side of Fred I’d never heard before.

    So happy that Tiffany decided to share her story! You were snd still are awesome sweetiekins! I need to come chill this winter.
    Great job Ashley and April for another fantastic podcast!

      Thank you so much as always Jeanne! xo

    • Tiffany Clark · September 20, 2016 Reply

      So I listened to this and I was so happy the way it came out. Of course it was made easy by April. She let things flow and now listening to the end result I am so glad that she was the one I gave this interview. Thank you April for the time you took to make me feel comfortable. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

        We’re so pleased you are happy with it and thank you for putting your trust in us. But the best outcome by far is our friendship. xo

    “Cat” was the very first of my surrogate “kids” ever to call me “Daddy.” And while that might sound a little bit creepy to those who are not in the real know, it was the most sincerest form of appreciation that I’ve ever received during my four and a half decades as part of “The Family of X.”

  8. Tiffany Clark · September 12, 2016 Reply

    Why wait till winter, doors open always. And yes April and Ash have always been wonderful. If only I could figure out how to listen to this I would be so happy. Love you Jeanne.

    The dude with Tiff on the ‘Tarot Temptress’ cover is Greg “Rocky” Rome. His claim to fame is spotting Christy Canyon on the street, giving her a card for World Modeling and, thus, making history (well, for Christy).

    Tif, thank you so much for telling your story. It was wonderful hearing your voice. I have a copy of the New York Post article that you mention in the interview; the date is Friday, April 15, 1988. Your nose looks good in the photo of you with that article!

    • Tiffany Clark · September 20, 2016 Reply

      Thank you, I held off but April was kind and patient waiting for me to say yes. How are you????

    Love seeing the pics of Tiffany, she is sooooo good looking! She had such great chemistry when she shot scenes with older men like R. Bolla and the late Jake Teague. It was such a treat when you rented a VHS in the early 80’s they usually featured the beautiful Tiffany Clark and Samantha Fox. In fact in honor of Tiffany I am going to watch her tonight in The Playgirl. It seemed like Tiffany worked with every male porn star in the NY scene in the 80’s? I wonder if she was ever approached about performing with Luis De Jesus? Luv you Tiffany….you are a legend!

    Tiffany Clark!!!!!! I’ve been hoping and waiting for this since I discovered this marvelous site – and it does not disappoint. I wasn’t one of the original Animals but I do remember hanging out with Tiffany at the Melody and she was every bit as approachable as she is in this interview. A truly wonderful woman. It is good to finally know the real person. Thank you for this.

    • Tiffany Clark · September 20, 2016 Reply

      Mark, to know that people out there remember the old days with a smile on their faces makes me smile today. I have been away from the industry since Fred and I departed. I have been lucky enough to have kept in touch with some of the wonderful people in the business as years have passed. I thank you for your high praise and hope this report helps you know the lady inside the woman you all knew

    Tiffany – how about a book of your life, and if there was a movie version…. who would play you?

    • Tiffany Clark · September 20, 2016 Reply

      Anon I really want to write a book but who would read it ???? As far as someone playing me in a movie I’m not sure who I would like to see do that part.

    I always enjoy reading the comments when Rialto comes out with new material, but some comment sections are particularly outstanding — like this one. Reading the comments here from those in the adult industry, fans and Tiffany herself is a joy…I suppose the only thing that can top it is the podcast itself! I love the Rialto Report and all their excellent work!

    To all who took the time to listen, Thank You. April and Ash Kisses and Hugs…… I love you all and it feels so good to know that what we did back in the days still has a positive impact today….

    As Always
    Lustfully Yours,

    Tiffany Clark

    OMG!!! I cannot believe how lucky I am to have stumbled upon this podcast! I was going thru my Tiffany Clark renaissance back in July and bought a copy of “Babe” after watching “That’s Outrageous”. Had been wondering what was up with you, Tiffany, all these years. Then I stumble upon this! THANK YOU RIALTO!

    You and Lisa Cintrice are my all-time favorite adult actresses. Gorgeous, brunette, all-natural bodies (cannot stand “fake parts” and today’s plastic cookie cutter blondes.) Glad your life has leveled out and you are in a good space. And by the way- You look as beautiful today as you did then. My all-time favorite scene in any movie ever: Hot Dreams. The phone, the mirror, and your beautiful face. Sincerely, “TC Animal for life” Eddie.

    Now Rialto please land interviews with Jessie St. James, Joanna Storm, Chelsea Blake, or Lee Carroll. This Tiffany Clark find was certainly one of the best. Thank you!

    • Tamara Longley fan · October 19, 2016 Reply

      I was a big Chelsea Blake fan too! She was never the star of her films but was a great actress and had an amazing lean muscular body for a woman in her 40’s. I once asked Candida Royalle in an email whatever happened to her? and she said she was one of her favorite woman to work with but lost touch with her around 1985.

      PS. And I have been a Jesie St James fan since I saw her jogging in her sexy red outfit in the beginning of her first starring role Easy, but I believe her Diamond Collection loop with black superstar King Paul was one of her first appearances.

  20. Eddie Laverne · October 9, 2016 Reply

    If Rialto could land an interview with Patti Petite, I would be forever in your debt. I read on a comment string from some website (cannot remember which) that some guy that knew her and saw her recently said the following:

    — She did not lose a leg in a car accident as previously reported. She still has all her limbs;
    — She is quite a good singer and was in a band playing in and around the small town of Cotati, CA.

    There ya go! If you need my help, let me know. Let’s get started! ;o)

    Ms. Clark:
    I’m an Italian published author.
    McFarland just published my book on the horror & sci-fi cult B-movies of the 80s.
    I’m working on a book on the Hollywood indie movie producers and distributors, mainstream and adult.
    I’d be happy to ask you some questions about “HOT ROCKERS” (1985), your only directing effort.
